The highest mountain station in the Alps is reached by gondola rail Matterhorn Express to Trockenen Steg, followed by an adventurous cable car ride to the Matterhorn galcier paradise station, which has been cut out in the face of rock.

Panorama windows, heaven-bound trip to the summit, glacier palace with sculptures and ice slide, as well as a restaurant with shop and mountain accommodation boasting environmentally friendly Minergie-P energy standards all add to this pinnacle of enjoyment.
